Juan Williams: Liberal media will ‘shut you down, stab you, kill you, fire you’ if you disagree

Fox News political analyst and “Special Report” panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices.

Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.

“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”


It’s not just the big media institutions. Intolerance for diversity is a modern progressive trait. Look at the way the boys at DailyKos reacted to Hillary supporters back in 2007-08. Look at the way the Vile Progs treated the Clintons and everyone else associated with the DLC. Look at how they treat even mild criticism of Obama.

That’s how they treat people who are mostly on their side. Like the Rush song says, “Conform or be cast out”.

Wingnuts will argue with you all day long and twice on Sunday, but they generally don’t try to shut you down and keep you from speaking. When is the last time a bunch of Tea Partiers tried to interrupt a Democratic speaker and keep him/her from speechifying?

    Their ideology is so weak that it cannot withstand any questions.

    Vile Progs are like teenagers. They have to conform in their non-conformity. It’s really quite predictable.

    I think intolerance is the entire progressive ideology. That’s their whole value system. President Obama was on TV blathering something about sequestration and his entire speech revolved around expressing intolerance for congress or anybody that disagrees with him. The problem is, what does he believe in? Who knows! He’s intolerant of those who won’t get on board with his ideas, but he doesn’t really have any ideas. It’s just crazy. I was trying to figure out what he wants to see happen, and I was left to conclude that what he wants is to continue to practice intolerance towards Republicans, the wealthy, Dems that stray, gun owners, bitter clingers, etc, etc. If you take away the “opposition,” he’d have no platform, nothing to do. His entire ideology is about showing his intolerance towards others.

    • votermom says:

      That is so true! And now stolen…

    • insanelysane says:

      Exactly. Obama has never won elections on the basis of his ideas or programs. He wins by swift-boating his opponents.
      He has no character or ideals he will fight for.

    The very sad and most difficult part of it is that if you try to engage them in a conversation, they lash out at you if you don’t agree with them. They become like vampires….there is no reflection in the mirror of life….only vitriol and blood sucking. And the most difficult part of it, they suffer under incredible delusion. The Tea Party is racist, confrontational and evil. If you ask them to give you an example, they will tell you, still, that Tea Baggers spit on congressmen, for example. The challenge now, and the difficult question is, how will this end?…how will rational, open, caring individuals help right this foundering ship of state????

    • yttik says:

      If I were in charge of solving all the world’s problems, I think I would go with dropping the rope. In a power struggle, that’s how you get your opponent to fall on his a$$. Since their entire ideology revolves around intolerance and trying to destroy the opposition, I think you stop opposing them. That’s what I have to do in local politics, let them show the rest of the community what their ideas (or lack thereof,) actually look like. The more I bash my head against a brick wall, the stronger they get. Today I simply say, “sure go ahead and spend 100 grand building a giant concrete dog turd to place in the middle of town. Just make sure every one of your names is placed on a plaque at the bottom of it.”

      • driguana says:

        Like the idea of “dropping the rope”….you don’t lose ground, you just let them go….really does, also, still remind me of the Tower of Babel….let them babble their way to destruction!

          This week I was sitting Shiva with a family who lost a close friend of mine. Her sister and brother-in-law started to pontificate about what a change-agent Obama is, and she has met him a few times, and he is a very evolved being yada yada. They said Hillary needed to be “redeemed” in 2008 and gave Obama total credit for the glorious health care revolution. I just sat there, silent. Shiva was not the place for a debate, but they could feel my lack of enthusiasm and asked. I just said, “this is not the place for that discussion, but I’ve done my research and IMO he is not that person.” They were stunned and mystified. How could I not worship and adore him?! The brother-in-law approached me later and said he’d be interested to hear my point of view. I have learned from 4+ long years: Obama lovers do not want facts. They want him to be the fantasy savior they need him to be. Facts only get in the way, and they attack the messenger.

      Vile Progs are propped up by the media. Expose the media to the free market, they will go out of business which takes away their power and the power of the vile progs. Accomplish this by teaching people to cut the cable and to get only the shows they want from the internet. Media channels no one wants and which do not reflect our culture, depend on everyone paying for their channels in a bundle.

    Completely OT, but I usually don’t like religious songs: find them boring and saccharine. And I usually don’t like sappier country songs, or songs about long-suffering country women. But I found this one recently, and really like it. It comes across as honest. If God’s love exists in this world, it exists only in the unconditional love we show one another. I’ve seen more of God in family and friends that have my back and love me regardless than I’ve ever seen in a sermon.

    Okay, a little weird to be posting here, but felt like sharing that.

    Even the most silly things, like myiq’s old joke about government workers gets vile progs in a tizzy, yelling and screaming about how government workers are the hardest workers in the world. Jeeebus, they can’t even take jokes anymore.

    • yttik says:

      Progressives always need a victim to rescue. It’s kind of scary these days, because the victim now seems to be government. In upside down world, all us little people are actually oppressing the President. Government workers are now like victims of racism, they’re being discriminated against by the general public. Workers are not powerless people who join unions to try and have a voice, unions are victims, persecuted by workers who don’t comply. Who holds the power in any given situation has been turned on it’s head. The rich, the powerful, the organized, are now persecuted groups in need of our support and protection.

      • wmcb says:

        HONK! They are so invested in their self-image as adversaries of The Man, that they cannot and will not accept that they BECAME The Man a long time ago. They simply refuse.

        So now some redneck plumbers, stay at home moms in small towns, and non-PC comedians are The Man, and The Oppressors, NOT the group that almost exclusively controls all the mighty levers of government, academia, and the press. No matter how much power they gain, and no matter how much of a mess they make with that power, they still claim to be the perpetual oppressed forever and ever amen. And they claim it with a straight face and utter blindness to how fucking ridiculous, preening, and nonsensical that claim is.

        • Lulu says:

          It is moral superiority because they don’t have any. Morals that is in the form of principles to live by rather than Judeo-Christian. And their superiority comes from insecurity as a defense mechanism. If they aren’t moral and superior they have to face their inadequacies and boring average-ness. It is also called tooting your own horn (as no one else will) because they got nothing to toot about. They are sad, hysterical, boring, tedious, greedy and self absorbed. They identify with each other and their leaders and loathe everyone else.

        • HELENK says:

          you made some good points there.
          Archie grew up in a time where taking welfare was embarrassing and many felt shame for doing so. standing in line to get government cheese was not like getting an EBT card is today.
          A woman getting an abortion was not something to celebrate and the government did not pay for it
          A family listening to a radio program was not embarrassed like watching some of the tv shows today

          It was a different time. some of it good, some of it bad. But every time has good and bad things during it

    Excellent piece up at Gay Patriot re: the intolerance of the left. Deserves some attention:

    • HELENK says:

      that was a good article. think about it if the 2008 primary had not gotten so ugly and it made people stop look and listen, how many of us would still be democrats and not independents

      • wmcb says:

        I likely would. But I’m an independent forever, now. Even if either party cleans up their act and comes more in line with my thinking, NEITHER of them ever gets my loyalty again. Ever.

        • HELENK says:

          agreed

        • DandyTiger says:

          Same here. I see through both of them now. The establishment behind both of them is the same. And they will go to any length to do what they want. The right seems nicer now only because they’re in the minority. They both suck. Principles, not party. (used to be principles before party, but that’s impossible).

    • yttik says:

      That is a good article. It goes right along with what we’re talking about.

      LOL, some idjit in that thread comments about how evil, vile, ignorant, the right is and than criticizes them for using ridicule, mockery, and name calling, as well as having no sense of humor. I have a sense of humor! I thought the projection was kind of funny.

    little known law slams pot sellers with a really high tax

    • yttik says:

      LOL,I predict pot selling will be the end of progressive ideology. In my state it’s now legal and the grumbling and whining has already begun. Suddenly people aren’t as fond of the Gov as they thought they were. I’m seeing a lot of progressives start to go libertarian. People wanted it to be legal, they weren’t counting on all the different branches of Gov lining up to redistribute the wealth.

      • They should count their lucky freakin’ stars. I would pay a 1000% tax to be able to smoke legally. I prefer my vices to be legal, which is why that is no longer one of my vices.

    • Constance says:

      This is only a problem for legally selling pot, Legally growing small amounts is an important part of the new law. The new laws make it OK to grow around 15 plants per person with a prescription so people won’t get sent to jail for growing small amounts which is a waste of government resources. 15 plants per person is enough to challenge criminal element growers and importers. In this economy I bet you will see the old retired hippies restarting their grow operations to help their income. It will take awhile for the law enforcement to settle out but they may collect some taxes, small time users and growers won’t suck up law enforcement resources, and people who are wasting away from chemo etc won’t have to deal with criminals to get relief.

      • yttik says:

        I sure hope it all works out. I have visions of raids, not from the cops anymore, but from the Dept of Revenue.

      • insanelysane says:

        My HB has a script and is legal to grow, so I grow 6 plants in my garden. I am a professional gardener and make my own compost so this turns out to be several pounds of clean buds. Way more than we need and selling is illegal in our case so I give it away to anyone who wants it or needs it.
        We are popular in our circle of friends and family.

    • yttik says:

      I used to think minimum wage was a good idea…until it became maximum wage. I don’t know why that happens, but the incentive to work hard and get a promotion is gone. Jobs where you work your way up are becoming a thing of the past.

      I know many people where I live that are now making the same wage they did in high school. One woman who works in the bakery, started 25 years ago…at 9 dollars an hour. Today she makes just over that, minimum wage. We have one of the highest minimum wages in the country, but rather then lift people up, I really think it’s brought wages down. Looking at the statistics for my county, that’s certainly the case.

      • wmcb says:

        One of my biggest beefs with minimum wage laws, besides the general job loss, is the effect on the youth.

        Years ago, teenagers could go to work making next to nothing. And that was okay, because they still lived at home, and all they really needed was spending money. As a result, business owners were happy to hire some teenagers, often several, to bag groceries or mind a counter or whatever.

        An amazing thing happened: teenagers developed some job skills. They developed a little discipline, and learned how to function in a work environment without getting pissy over every little thing. They did this in a manner and in an environment where it was safe for them to do so. They matured. Also, they weren’t bored and getting into mischief, because they *had a freaking job*.

        So by the time they grew up, got out of school, and needed a genuine bonafide job that could support them, they had several years of experience and adjustment to a work environment under their belts.

        Minimum wage laws absolutely destroyed that sort of natural on-the-job-training that teenagers used to get. With, IMO, some pretty disastrous results.
